Tracking The Rise Of The Villains
Headlines
65 Comments

Gotham‘s new season bares the theme “Rise Of The Villains”.  Darkness is on the rise in Gotham and, despite the efforts of Jim Gordon, things seem to be going from bad to worse.

Not to fear, ComiConverse is here with all you need to know about the new villains this season.

Gotham started out with  some of the best known members of Batman’s rogues gallery last year and they will return alongside of the new villains also included in this guide.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

The most anticipated villain this season is the Joker. Last season we saw a young man by the name of Jerome, who was highly rumoured to be playing the character who would eventually become the Joker. With Cameron Monaghan, who plays Jerome, having posted this picture on Instagram, it doesn’t take a big leap to assume that he is going to be Gotham‘s version of The Joker.

Another villain coming to reek havoc on Gotham will be Mr. Freeze. It hasn’t been said yet whether we will be meeting Mr. Freeze or just Victor Fries, the scientist who is dedicating his life’s work is to curing his wife’s illness. Gotham is all about origin stories, so it is very likely we will be seeing Victor Fries, the scientist, before we get to Mr. Freeze. If Gotham‘s character development pattern holds, sometime around the mid-season finale we will get to see the early stages of Mr. Freeze. Some of the biggest villains on Gotham right now do not have abilities or powers. Freeze will obviously have his cold gun on him and it will be interesting to see how the GCPD handles that without Batman around.Freeze

A villain who is traditionally a big of Batman’s rogues gallery that has not come to life on the small or big screen yet is Clayface. It has been strongly hinted that Clayface will be a rising villain in season two. Clayface has the ability to shape shift into other people, which makes him a far more supernatural then many of the villains we have met so far. This ability is easier to bring to television than Mr. Freeze’s because it wouldn’t be that hard to make a person look like they’re shape shifting on television. It seems unlikely that we would be seeing a lot of Clayface in his actually body, which is just a big clump of clay with eyes and a mouth. The more logical thing to do is have him stay in human form and then change into different people from there.

As for the returning characters, Penguin and Edward Nygma will both be back.  Last season we saw the transformation of Edward Nygma into the Riddler we all know today – if slightly more deranged. After he went off the deep end by killing his “bully”, there will be no going back. Season two will be showing us the transformation of an emotionally disturbed Edward Nygma into the true embodiment of The Riddler. The Riddler has been one of the most beloved villains in the DC universe and it’s great to see him so well portrayed.

Last but not least, the fan-favorite known as the Penguin will limp his way back into your television screens this fall. After becoming the ‘King Of Gotham’ in the season finale. How much more powerful than the police and his other rivals will the Penguin become?  Its an open question.

The Penguin seemed pretty developed as a character in season one and is pretty far along on his path to becoming THE Penguin. Perhaps by the end of season two we will see The Iceberg Lounge take shape and the Penguin’s relationship with Jim Gordon play out to its seemingly dark conclusion.

Gotham premieres September 21st at 8:00 P.M. on FOX

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  31. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
